The Pumas prepare for the November window. And this Wednesday, days before traveling to Europe to prepare for the first game against France, the UAR reported the loss of four players due to injury: Juan Cruz Mallía, Matías Alemanno, Rodrigo Bruni and Facundo Gigena.
Regarding the large number of injuries accumulated by the selected one between the Championship and what is to come, Ledesma said: “We had 17 injuries this year. Generally muscular injuries, which are typical of the preparation stage you are in. In this case It was a preseason playing against the best in the world. The year also, there were important injuries when they returned to their clubs, “he remarked.
“The whole calendar is half attached to the hair. Players who compete in the northern hemisphere and then go to the southern hemisphere, it is almost 12 months a year that they compete. It is something that World Rugby has to review. We spend our time talking about Welfare, and in the numbers, the injuries have grown exponentially, “added the coach.
And he wondered: “The question is: are we really doing things for the health of the players? I think they are being done in relation to blows to the head and high tackle, but the calendar is a pending matter and it is something to be done. He has spoken since we used to play rugby. It is the reality that touches us and with that we have to do our best, “he concluded.
